The specs indicate that it is tuned for torque and for mileage. With 375 lbs. dry weight and a very small frontal area it should do well. It might do better on longer trips with 1 tooth more on the counter shaft sprocket.

47 -55 mpg still running in and obviously restricted to 6k but normal riding town and country using what revs I can and taking to rev limit etc so I guess you'd really have to rag it to drop below 40mpg methinks!

I'm at 2000 km and my average is 47 mpg. Half of the KM is made in a congested city (istanbul) and half of it is short weekend trips.

I have rode it hard past 2 tanks when out riding with a Panigale 1199 and MS 1200 DVT and it has not dropped below 54mpg. Very impressed given I was over 6k revs a lot. That was blasting through country lanes and just hitting 3 digits on faster roads. Have 1500 miles on the odometer now and bike feels nicely loosened up. Now I have put an aftermarket can on will be curious how this effects the mpg with the cat now gone

54 mpg UK is 45 mpg US, which is exactly what I have been getting for about 6,000 miles. I'm also not light on my throttle. :)

Relatively "heavy" throttle hand (all numbers are US)...

Bone stock bike - 42mpg around town, 49mpg highway

After installing Remus Hypercone Exhaust, BMC Air Filter & Rexxer Tuning - 37mpg around town, 44mpg highway

But I picked up over 6 peak HP, and 3 ft/lbs of torque too - so I consider it a "fair" trade.

I'm consistently getting over 60mpg (UK) on every fill up. I don't know what constitutes riding like a granny, but on motorways/dual carriageways I cruise at about 80, in towns keep to speed limit, on country roads anything up to 70+ depending on how straight they are! Only for overtaking of course :angel5:

I recently had a decent ride combined city and country roads and after a ride of 91 miles, I filled the tank and it took 1.7 gallons so I was happy with that. I think it's the best mileage I've gotten so far though.

I get 60mpg on longer rides (50mpg US) and around 54mpg when commuting (45mpg US) So better than I expected. Light usually comes on around 115 - 130 miles depending on my mood.
When I picked it up, it could barely manage 100 miles to a tank. It increased a lot after 800-1000 miles.

Now that I have a 16t front sprocket mileage is constantly 55MPG or better. My driving stayed the same so mileage is up about 5-8MPG.
